A silly question.

Does anyone know who to zoom out on webpages?

I recently got internet on an old computer. Though it quite fats, the size of some text and pages is disproportionate; including ZU and Google.

I'm pretty sure there is a code for zooming out on web pages, because I've stumbled across it before by acccident.

I'll edit this with screen shots later.

Re: A silly question.

Try holding the Ctrl key and using the scroll on your mouse.

Re: A silly question.

If your computer is old and the advice above doesn't work, you could try and change the resolution on your screen/monitor. It's usually a setting on the control panel for Windows.

Re: A silly question.

Awww.. I didn't get a chance to use this screenshot:

Oops... My finger slipped. Thanks dude!
It was the text that was causing me trouble, it looked too big even though it was one. Thank you both!

Re: A silly question.

The real question is how do you do it when you're on a laptop without a mouse? 'Cause that's a problem that I've had. Usually when I accidentally increase the font size on IE, I have to close the browser and reopen it.

Here's what you do:
-Go up to the toolbar and click View
-Scroll down to Text Size
-Adjust it accordingly

Re: A silly question.

Hey, thanks. I'm using a version of IE that's a little different; but I found the equivalent setting.

Thanks!

Awesome! I can do this on my laptop. On my laptop the words were atleast this small and I had no way of adjusting it, I had no clue how to, and now thanks to your solution everything is perfect. Thanks!

Re: A silly question.

Or just use the shortcuts, ctrl + + for text size increase and ctrl + - for text size decrease, and ctrl + 0 for text size default.

I was going to put those hotkeys but for some reason they don't always work on all laptops.
